Hmmm, Something odd going on here.


For about the last 6 months or so, somebody has been running my articles through a plagiarism checker. I’m really not sure what to make of this. I write everything on my blog and I write everything as my own original thoughts.

Are my thoughts inspired by the work of other people? Well, DUH… I quote other sources and attribute via links whenever I quote someone elses work. Anything else would be dishonest and, well, plagiarism.

Just for the record, since it actually seems to be an issue here of late. I am not a plagiarist, I do not steal anyones work. What you read here, are my thoughts on any given subject. They may have been influenced by what other people have expressed, but they are my own carefully thought out ideas.

Whomever it is that keeps running my articles through plagiarism checker, I don’t know why you are doing this, but knock yourself out. I have nothing to hide and I am not an intellectual thief. Perhaps I should be flattered, as I write what I write for the specific purpose of attempting to make people think about the subject that I am discussing. I do not expect or attempt to get people to blindly agree with me, I am not in the business of propaganda. I want people to think about why they hold the views and opinions that they hold.

I want people to challenge their own beliefs systems and see if what they believe actually can be supported by the facts, or if what they believe is simply a case of confrontational bias. There is nothing in all of the human condition more difficult then performing a fearless and searching moral inventory of ones own beliefs.

So, by all means, Mister or Misses Anonymous please continue running what I write through plagiarism checker, what you will find here really is what I think, and not something stolen from someone else.

  1. nuclearoptional here. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery…but originality is beyond compare. Ready for brain storming or brain drizzling when you are.

  2. hey dorian, if you catch this, could you pop over to the other place? readergirl (rain’s daughter) has some questions about learning guitar

  3. Seems to me that you’ve picked up a pet mental patient somewhere. I wonder if he or she is related in any way to the one that I picked up. Even if you’ve copied every word of every article, so what. You’re not charging anyone to read your stuff. You’re not selling advert space on your blog. You’re not using it to become rich and famous. You’re not making any specious claims. All you’re doing is making arguments on subjects that you personally feel strongly about. This is nothing more than some libtard attempting to foist some shutuppery upon you.

    • ROTFLMAO… It can’t be that good puppy nobody is paying me to write. Hell, Noah Rothman’s writing sucked and even he got paid to write for Salem “Witch Trials” Communications.
